“The sower sows the word.”
Mark 4:14 NKJV
It came to my heart today that just as Jesus is a sower, we his children are also sowers!
Who is a sower of the word? – A person who puts words into the soil with the aim of getting a harvest. The reason he or she is called a sower is because they continue to sow and expect a harvest! The fact that the sower expects a harvest makes him or her put the right kind of seed into the soil.
When a sower wants beans, he sows beans! When he wants maize he sows maize. Here the sower is sowing words! We the children of God are meant to be word sowers too!
The seed (words) will produce fruit when sown on fertile soil! We should always sow the words of the kingdom into the lives of everyone around us! With time the word will bring forth fruit! You may encounter all kinds of soils! Don’t stop sowing! Fruit will come out from some!
We want more children in the kingdom! Let us sow the words of the kingdom! Engage someone in a discussion about the kingdom! Don’t worry about the harvest – Sow a lot and Pray for a harvest! Our Father will take care of the harvest of the words that fall on the right soil!
